A few months ago, a young client from New York requested us, and expressed his wish to realize a modern home in the old district of Brooklyn. The task was quite difficult, it was necessary to study the design standards in this area, to make friends with not very attractive, but the existing old buildings and embody the client's desire, namely, a house for parties. Due to the fact that the plot is narrow and the neighbors are very close, we tried to avoid the windows on the side facades in order to illuminate the central part of the house. The sunken light well was organized, and also there is staircase around it.
The facade of the building is quite minimalistic, and it is precisel by its strict form that it stands out against the background of the classical forms of the neighboring houses.
